Sinister vs. TrevolryJacob Deitloff on 18 November 2011 at 1:33 pm
Professor Sinister and Professor Trevolry, previously two unique characters, have been combined into one character. Due to the fact that Professor Trevolry is described as being a goff, and she is more of a primary character than just a professor, we've decided that Professor Trevolry (actually: Professor Trelawney) is given the name "Sinister Trevolry" to stay consistent with the "goffs get goff names" mode.

If we're counting McGonagall as the correct form based on the assumption that McGoogle is an obvious attempt at the HP version, I really think we should acknowledge that Loopin is in the same vein.

I agree with this. We should make the change.
<sentence/> and <dialogue/>Jacob Deitloff on 15 November 2011 at 2:08 pm
In the markup thus far, sometimes we have situations where we have something like:

<sentence><dialogue>"Hello."</dialogue> said Satan.</sentence><sentence><dialogue>"How are you?"</dialogue>.</sentence>

According to English grammar, this can be one sentence, like so:

<sentence><dialogue>"Hello."</dialogue> said Satan. <dialogue>"How are you?"</dialogue>.</sentence>

In our document, we have both, and inconsistently. I feel like we need to choose one or the other, and then make sure everything is standard through our document. Your comments?

I think I prefer the second way.

But they are two sentences... unless the dialogue is split by a comma and a speakingVP and then restarts with a conjunction.
Chapters 36, 37, and 28Jacob Deitloff on 8 November 2011 at 12:41 pm
So, three new chapters have been marked up and uploaded to the site: chapter 36, chapter 37, and chapter 28. I managed to start marking up that latter chapter a few weeks back, and then just up and decided to forget it; that's my fault, I'm sorry guys.

Look into place handle="transfigurationClass" sp type="???" intended="Transfiguration" Transformation /sp /place. This error is actually pretty interesting because Transfiguration IS about transformation, but it's still the wrong word. Not sure if we want to do something about it, but it's pretty cool.

IMO, it's like with Enoby or Dumblydore; we can reasonably assume that Tara wanted it "Transfigurations," "Ebony," and "Dumbledore" respectively. If that's what your question was?
Janis Chinn on 4 November 2011 at 11:54 am
Sort of? I think this kind of error is a little different? idk.

We could also just mark this as malaproper.
